My work considers various aspects of the human condition, reflecting an awe and bewilderment at life and societal tendencies. I am interested in representing contradictions I perceive in human activity such as tendencies of expansive growth and restrictive constraint, vitality and impermanence, order and chaos. Fabricated ceramic components and found objects within my installations refer to the cultural artifacts constructed to support societies and represent the ways we live. The use of unfired clay as the primary substance supporting, consuming, and providing a backdrop for these symbols of social construct emphasizes the fallibility and temporality of life and the systems, structures, and innovations upon which we rely. Works are suspended in space as foreign interventions, encroaching on the comfort and expectations of viewers in hope of provoking reflections of our accepted realities.
